    If you've been sandboxed, you show up at a reasonable position in Yahoo and/or Bing but not Google. THe sandbox is a Google specific phenomenon.

    The solution: Build links. Search the forum, to learn how. You will be out in 3 months.

    wow, i think one of my sites is a few steps past sandboxed. searching for my domain name in google and yahoo all i get is other sites. only in msn does it even come up as the first entry.

    site is actually nearly 7 years old, but someone never felt the love. maybe i should just make a new domain name, who knows.

    wrong.

    as micalef said, you'll still show in google - just in a stupid low position like page 40 or something.

    if you're suddenly on page 2, don't shit yourself. people mistake the dance for the sandbox all the time.

    You get a bucket and spade sent from gloogl !

    Sorry, sandbox as Micallef rightly points out is a G**gle specific characteristic so you will show in other search engines.
    I cannot help with the message you have shown but would like to know myself for future reference. Anyone?

    From what I've heard you have to wait 6-8 months. I dont think there's anything you can do about it. Sorry man!:(

    if you post your competitor's links on porn site forums and poker/casino forums, then there is high probability that his site can get sandboxed.

    If google finds bad neighbourhood sites linking to a site, it considers those sites as bad neighbourhood sites

    but it also depends how many good neighbourhood sites are linking to your competitor, for example if he has 1000 links coming from good neighbourhood sites (PR 2 + ), then there is high probability that a few links from porn forums will not do much harm

    hope it helps :D
